Obituary for Jean Wiseley

Jean A. Wiseley

Jean was born in Detroit on April 6, 1925, the only child of Eric and Vera Rylander. The family moved to Brighton when Jean was young and she graduated from Brighton High School and later Albion College with a teaching degree. After graduation she moved to Flint where she met her husband John and taught 2nd grade for several years before they moved to Swartz Creek and she did substitute teaching nearly every day for many years before retiring. She is survived by her son John and his wife Ann, living with them for four years in Owosso before moving to Oliver Woods Retirement Village. Many thanks to the staff there, past and present for their wonderful care. Ann and John would also like to thank their niece Erin Ford who went above and beyond providing hospice nursing care along with the aides from Residential Hospice.

Jean enjoyed watching the Tigers, Red Wings, and Pistons. After an especially important playoff goal she and her neighbor Jeff would flash their porch lights off and on to celebrate. Jean also enjoyed visiting with her neighbors and meeting friends at Subway and Burger King where the staff always went out of their way to make them feel special. Jean also enjoyed the trips and luncheons she went on with her soriety members. She was always a good sport going on family fishing vacations with husband John, and John and Ann, one time getting a night crawler harness stuck in her hair and another time getting attacked by black flies in Canada with never a complaint. Her whole life Jean liked being around school children, even later in life when students would come to Oliver Woods to practice their reading with the residents.

Jean died on October 4, 2018 and was predeceased by her husband John and her parents. A brief graveside service will be held 10am, Monday, October 8, 2018 at Bendle Cemetery in Swartz Creek.
